wtf, ohio!?

i was really hoping ohio would go my way and vote for obama. i still think he has a strong chance, and i do like him better than hillary, but winning ohio OR texas would've been a big hit to the clinton camp. i liked bill, but hillary, i just can't stomach. too bad. i haven't gotten my absentee ballot yet, and i haven't looked at the numbers. hopefully there is a windfall of absentee ballots that could push obama over the top? hah, wishful thinking gets me nowhere.

I didn't vote for either. I don't care who makes it as long as one of them makes it. The way McCain talked last night at his victory speech, he changed his "100 years more" in Iraq into "let's get out as soon as we can without causing a genocide" (which is promising) may make me seriously look at him, too.

Obama has no experience, he runs a sub-committee that has little power (unlike Dodd's committee that controlled Obama's), he speaks mostly in rhetoric (just like a politician). He says he will bring change, but then again, Bush said he was a 'uniter', not a 'divider'. He will get us out of Iraq, though, hopefully?!?!?!

Hilliary has done good things like being in the shit for a long time and making connections with many politicians. Her downside?: being in the shit for a long time and making connections with many politicians. Can her speeches and rhetoric be trusted?

McCain goes against all that FOX News and the Conservative Right preaches about. He is for campaign finance reform, he wants to end government earmarks, he is more moderated than the extremists who remain loyal with Republicans. And if his change on Iraq is truthful, then he is very viable.

I don't understand the hostility towards Hillary. She works pretty hard for what she believes in. And when she met my wife at Starbucks (we live in the same town as the Clintons, and my wife works at the local Starbucks), she was completely nice.

What is it that makes you dislike her so much?

You are doing your best to cancel my vote I see...I AM A HILLARY fan and that's that! Obama might be a great VP though. He can get his education starting there.

rich|: it's not hostility towards her, per se. i really can't verbalize what it is. i'm sure she's a nice woman. you don't get to be where you are without kissing a few hands and shaking a few babies, er... you know what i mean.

i guess maybe my biggest fear is how the part of the world i'm working in views women as 2nd class citizens. i fear that we'll go from pseudo-dictator to other countries thinking we are led but "a woman", this further destroying what little credibility we might still have left.

still, i fear for obama's physical safety because i'm not sure we are ready for a (1/2) black president. some people from my hometown have expressed their ignorance in not wanting a "n----r" or a "towelhead" running "our" country. closed minded, scared people do foolish, dangerous things. i guess i have concerns either way.

see what i mean about not being able to verbalize it.
